The third Saturday in May is a date that all walleye anglers mark on the calendar because it marks the opening day of a new walleye season in Northwest Ontario.
As a kid, my Dad always planned an outing on this day. We usually went to Tranquil Channel on Lake of the Woods, a known early season hot spot, we caught walleyes and cooked them up after.
I have a bunch of good memories from these trips as a kid.
Back then we fished out of an old boat without a livewell so we kept the fish on a stringer.
